When: 19:57 | Saturday 29/04/2017
Where: Allianz Stadium
Sydney FC have enjoyed a week off thanks to their top-placed finish and the extra rest has served them well.
Star man Milos Ninkovic limped off injured against the Jets in the final round and has now had sufficient time to recover and be ready for this clash.
Tactically, Sydney FC will continue to play the same way, which has served them so well this season.
Graham Arnold has been excellent in changing minor details game to game to suit each opponent.
Glory have hit top form at just the right time and their Elimination Finals win over City highlighted their counter attacking threat.
They created plenty of chances and scored two great goals to secure a deserved win over Tim Cahill’s boys.
But perhaps the most pleasing aspect against City was they were able to keep a clean sheet.
Having conceded a massive 53 goals in the regular season, it will be a huge confidence boost to the squad they were able to keep Melbourne’s potent frontline quiet.
KEY BATTLE: Milos Ninkovic v Diego Castro
This is the battle of the playmakers who have excelled for their clubs this season.
Ninkovic has nine goals and 10 assists, so it’s crucial for the Sky Blues he’s fit and firing.
Castro is equally important for Glory with 13 goals and seven assists to his name.
They’ve played three times this season with Sydney winning all three convincingly.
With the Sky Blues well rested and all players fit, they’ll be too strong for Perth.
